Alicia Keys is on deck to host the 2019 GRAMMY Awards. She replaces James Corden, who hosted the past two years. “I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I’m going to bring that vibe and energy,” she said in a press release. “I’m so excited to be the master of ceremonies on the biggest night in music and celebrate the creativity, power, and magic. I’m especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year! It’s going ‘UP’ on February 10!”
Neil Portnow added in a statement, “A dynamic artist with the rare combination of groundbreaking talent and passion for her craft, Alicia Keys is the perfect choice as host for our show.” The Grammys take place on February 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles; they’ll air live on CBS.
